School Book Fair
The Celtic Travelling Bookfair visits Boyerstown School this week. The children in all classes will get to view the books on Monday Tuesday and Wednesday. Parents/Guardians and pupils themselves will be able to purchase books on Thursday and Friday mornings in the Boyerstown Community Centre from 8.55am to 9.15am and also in Miss Quinn’s classroom from 2.05pm to 2.25pm and from 3.05pm to 3.30pm Thursday and Friday this week. We encourage all pupils and parents to come along and view the books on offer and hopefully you will see something that your child will enjoy reading. The benefit for the school is that each class will get to add books to their class libraries depending on the number of books sold in the Bookfair this week. If the book your child wants is not on the bookshelves when you come to purchase on Thursday and Friday, most books can be ordered from Celtic Books by the school and will be delivered to the pupils next week. Enjoy the week and happy reading to all.
We welcome all the pupils, parents and guardians back to St. Joseph's N.S. Boyerstown for the new school year. We hope you all had a relaxing Summer break and are refreshed and looking forward to a new year in Boyerstown. A very special welcome to the 13 new junior infants, who will finish school at 12pm until Friday September 6th. Senior infants will finish school at 2pm as usual, with 1st to 6th classes finishing at 3pm.
We welcome Mr. Keegan as our new 5th and 6th class teacher for 2019/20. Mr Keegan taught in Rathbeggan NS last year and is looking forward to working in our school this year.
New Drop and Go system
Drop and go system with new car park.
The system is a one-way system with all cars entering from the Athboy Rd side and exiting from the Ardbraccan side. Children can exit the cars on the extended footpath or on the clearly painted yellow lines. Children exiting on the yellow lines can walk to the pedestrian crossing and safely enter the school grounds through the wall stiles.
There is NO PARKING in the drop and go area at the front of the school. Parents/Guardians who wish to accompany younger children to the yard or to speak to a teacher must park outside Munchkins Montessori or in the church grounds.
We also ask parents/guardians to respect the two families who live across from the school by not parking across their driveways blocking their access to or exit from their homes.
1st and 2nd Class School to Fort Lucan
Even though the sun wasn't shining, that didn't stop 1st and 2nd class making the most of their school tour in Fort Lucan on Wednesday. We had a wonderful time on the helter skelter, ziplines, go carts, waterslides and playing minigolf. No teachers were tricked into eating toxic waste sweets, despite the pupils best efforts! The trip was a rounding success and a big thank you to the Parents Council for supplying the bus.
We wish the best of luck to the Boyerstown Camogie Team who play Kildalkey in the Meath Cumann na mBunscoil Division 2 Championship Final in Trim GAA Grounds on Saturday at 1pm. Also best wishes to our hurlers who play Kilbride in the Meath Cumann na mBunscoil Division 3 Hurling Championship Final at 3pm. In Trim Gaa Grounds this Saturday also
It is a wonderful achievement to have both our teams battling it out on the biggest day of the year for Meath Primary Schools in Camogie and Hurling. We ask all pupils parents family and friends to lend their vocal support to both teams this Saturday in Trim. Thank you to our coaches Miss O’Brien Miss Quinn and Mr OBric and to the skilled coaching the players are receiving from their clubs also, particularly Dunderry GFHC, Navan O’Mahony’s and Kildalkey. We appreciate their support.
